The evocative community murals that adorn our city invite us to see each other with the eyes of our hearts.  This year, much of our nation’s experience draws our focus to those disenfranchised in our society.  Even as we mark the 100th anniversary of Women’s Suffrage, we remember the Forced African Migration begun 400 years ago and whose afterlife continues to unfold.  Come, join us for a pilgrimage to contemplate murals that capture stories that too many of us have never been told and to be renewed in your commitment to equity and justice.  Our guide will be Maureen O’Connell, Associate Professor Religion and Theology at La Salle University, and author of If These Walls Could Talk: Community Muralism and the Beauty of Justice. Maureen’s current research is on racial identity formation.
